Global Self-publishing

ALLi is the only global self-publishing organization. We've just celebrated our first decade and our authors are found all over the world. Through our members, partners, ambassadors and organization network, we support ethics and excellence in self-publishing for indie authors everywhere and at all levels of society.

Did you know?

Indie authors can self-publish in almost two hundred countries, in formats including hardback, paperback, eBooks and audiobooks.

Books by indie authors account for 30-34% of all e-book sales in the largest English-language markets, as reported in Publishers Weekly.

Amazon readers rate traditionally published and self-published books as equally good using the platform's five-star review system. (K-Lytics, 2022)

We currently liaise with creative industry representatives across eight key publishing territories.

  • Africa
  • Asia & Middle East
  • Australia & New Zealand
  • Canada
  • Europe
  • South & Central America
  • United Kingdom of GB & NI (UK)
  • United States of America (US)

Our Ambassadors


ALLi ambassadors are volunteer members who support our campaigns for ethics and excellence in their local area. They connect local indie authors and services,  encourage and answer new self-publishers' questions about local markets and conditions, and demonstrate how ALLi can help indie authors make better books and reach more readers.

ALLi ambassadors also work with local and national organizations, to facilitate authors to gain excellent self-publishing skills. We believe this is the best way to foster accessibility and diversity in writing and publishing. Take a look at this page to spot your local Ambassador, and see below for some of their exciting achievements across the world.
